Paper Maniac Blog Hop...Rain


Hello!  Welcome to Paper Maniac's Beatles inspired blog hop!  If you just found the hop, you will want to start HERE.  If you have been hopping with us you should be arriving from Michelle's blog.  All of the participants in the hop were to choose a Beatle's song as their inspiration.  I chose the song Rain (1966).  This song was only number one for two weeks, and was on the "B" side of the Paperback Writer 45.  I used to LOVE to listen to my Mom's old 45's and this was one in her collection!  I also found out that The Beatles actually made a video for this song.  Click HERE to see it on You Tube!

How fitting that my favorite image from the Unity January retail kit is this cute couple cuddling behind an umbrella!  This kit is sold out, but in a week you will be able to order the NEW February Unity retail kit!  Can't wait!  I also used some BasicGrey Origins DP to paper piece the image.  I love the colors in this collection...YUMMY!  I also added some Kaiser pearls to the center and ends of the umbrella.

Want to know what you can win for hopping with us today?  The first prize will be all three new Cosmo Cricket mini deck pads, the Flourishes cloud background stamp, and a package of American Crafts pearl brads.  To be eligible to win you must leave comments on all participating blogs in the hop.  A random winner will be chosen.  The folks participating in the hop are also eligible for this prize, too!
The second prize is a $20 gift certificate to the PM store!  All you need to do is become a registered user at the store between Jan. 30-31 to be eligible!  You can sign up at the store HERE.

Your next stop on the hop is Randi!

Thanks for joining in the Paper Maniac Magical Mystery Hop!
